Author contributions on papers

I recently ran a poll on Twitter on author contribution sections on papers. For me, adding such a section is rather “new”, but I do feel like this is important to avoid people getting “free rides”. Certainly, authorship is a blurry topic, and for me, it sometimes feels even more complex because of the barrier some of my colleagues may experience for writing in English. By all means, I learned from this poll that most respondents find such a section “very important” – so I’ll be paying more attention to this topic and propose to always include this information for the journal I manage.

You can find the results of the poll and its wake here:
